  • Hi Metinpisco,

    Did you restore your laptop to the factory-configured status?
    If so, it's hard or almost impossible to get/recover your pictures.

    Please inform the further detail of "restore" you did.

  • Hi,

    If you restored your PC to the factory-configured image, you cannot get pictures back from C drive.
    If you saved your pictures in other than C drive, e.g. D drive, you are lucky and can get them back.
